Macomb Township MI Chiropractic Alleviates Back And Leg Pain
Our chiropractors spend countless hours studying the latest and most effective methods to relieve low back pain. We offer several therapies for back pain relief. The treatments to relieve back pain will focus on several factors which cause back pain. A common origin of back pain is from trauma resulting in a pinched nerve in the lower back.
A complete understanding of the origin of the nerves and the types of tissue damage is essential to the relief of low back pain. Our Macomb Township MI chiropractors attention will be directed to finding the anatomy which is involved in creating the back pain. We have found when we use therapies which reduce tissue inflammation, decrease the nerve conduction pain signal and reduce associated muscles we have significant effect in relieving back pain.
One of the most common therapies our chiropractors in Macomb Township MI use to relieve back pain is call electrical muscle stimulation therapy or EMS. Muscle stimulation therapy can be used to relieve back pain in a variety of ways. The therapy is very effective when used as a nerve block or for the reduction of the pain signal. Inflammation is often one of the factors causing back pain and the therapy electrical muscle stimulation can be modified to reduce the inflammation and therefore the pain signal. Inflammation and the inflammatory process will naturally cause in imbalance in the intracellular fluid irritating the pain receptors of the nerves. Using the pulsed mode of delivery on the muscle stimulation therapy aids in reducing inflammation.
There is a common household product we use in our Macomb Township MI chiropractic clinic is a cryopack. The cold pack when used properly can be very effective in reducing the pain signal from back pain. A cold pack will have two physiological effects in reducing back pain. The two ways ice packs help in the reduction of pain are to reduce the transmission of the nerve or pain signal and to constrict the tissue thereby reducing inflammation. By reducing the nerve conduction velocity it helps to reduce the pain signal. Reducing the inflammatory response will decrease the irritants which cause the pain signal.
Our chiropractors in Macomb Township MI yay apply inteferential current as the therapy of choice. Interferential current treatment has been shown in various research projects to effectively reduce the pain signal causing back pain. Placing the therapy pads at right angles is an important factor when applying this form of electrical current. The combination of pad placement and modulated current work in unison for the reduction of back pain.
A exceptional form of therapy to relieve back problems by our Macomb Township MI chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation. This unique form of therapy uses the opposing muscle groups and their nerves to inhibit the nerve signal and thereby relieving back pain The principle of peripheral neurological facilitation is when the body contracts one muscle it reduces the signal sent to the opposing muscle group. The reason for this is so the opposing muscle group is not contracting at the same time which will cause an injury. Peripheral neurological facilitation when used in associations with other forms of therapy can be extra beneficial for the reduction of low back pain and related muscle tension.
